Shipping per item
Magento should allow for an item to have special shipping parameters set - i.e. pick up only, flat rate, shipping table
Here is an Australian magento module for Aussie carriers. You can view special shipping parameters and view on product and cart level. http://www.courierquotes.com.au/magento-shipping-per-product
Also take a look at a simple approach for the flat shipping rate per item: http://amasty.com/shipping-per-product.html
By popular demand, we've now also released a Pro version of our flat rate shipping extension that allows you to set up multiple service levels, international shipping, and multiple calculation methods (sum of values, highest value, lowest value). Check that one out here: http://store.redstage.com/flat-rate-shipping-per-product-pro.html.
We’ve actually put out an extension that simply allows you to specify a flat rate for an individual product. We’ve had so many requests from our own clients, that we thought it would be a good idea to just build one. Here’s the link: http://store.redstage.com/flat-rate-shipping-per-product.html

Take a look at http://www.webshopapps.com. We 2 main extensions in the product area
- Product Rate at $80 where shipping rates are defined under product listing in admin
- Product Matrix which is csv based and has been described as 'tablerate on steroids'. This has had over 3 man years of development, it's a powerhouse of an extension.
There are also variations on these.
Being commercial extensions this means we can offer you the highest level of support, something we simply couldn't do if they were free.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your shipping requirements, you won't find anyone as good.

I think this is a serious shortcoming of this otherwise brilliant ecommerce platform.
It really is a mystery why per-product shipping isn’t a standard Magento feature when I am sure it would be quite simple to implement and it applies to so many different real-life situations.
How many stores actually sell items that all cost the same amount to ship? And why are we forced to set complicated table rates according to weight, size and quantity when it would be so much simpler to add a tab for each the individual product named “shipping rate”?
Browse the web for “Magento per-product shipping” and you will find thousands of companies looking for this feature and offering hundreds of dollars to PHP developers to come up with a solution.
I understand that there are a few commercial extensions available for this purpose, but Magento is first and foremost an open-source platform and basic features such as this should be included.
I think it's time to put some pressure on the very talented Magento team to finally implemet this. Am I being unreasonable?
